What is Final Trimming?


Final trimming in its simplest form is the surface, whether it be bitumen, gravel or pavement is in its correct shape before it is locked in and cannot be changed. Final trimming is also the process of smoothing out flat surfaces such as roads or carpark flooring to ensure the surface is level. This process is conducted utilising a grader that can angle the blade to suit the surface as well as the specifications the client needs. Final trimming ultimately allows for the surface to be compacted and flattened for vehicles such as cars, trucks and buses to drive on to get from point A to point B.

Equipment Needed to Conduct Final Trimming

In order to conduct a final trim, you first need the machinery that can handle as well as complete your final trimming requirements. The machinery that is required is a grader. This is a large machine used to trim grades into the earth’s surface for any project in the infrastructure, civil, construction and mining industries. By utilising a grader for your final trimming project, it will allow the grader to trim the material surface to the correct shape. The blade on the grader can also adjust to the depth requirements of the specific location, so it can meet council regulations.

What is Final Trimming used for?

Final trimming can be utilised for a range of services including:

  • Highways
  • Carparks
  • Council roads
  • Construction sites
  • Industrial sites

Benefits of Final Trimming

The main benefit of final trimming is that it ensures that the surface you are conducting a project on is flat and the entire surface is the exact height for the whole length. As an example, highways or roads need to be flat the entire length and this can only be achieved through conducting final trimming utilising a grader. Another benefit is that final trimming is much more accurate when compared to general grading. Final trimming can also be utilised to produce an inclined surface, to give camber or side slope to roads. In some countries, this is used to produce drainage ditches on either side of the highways.
